Aussies will come hard at us: Ganguly

Melbourne:

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has cautioned his teammates not to be fooled by Australia's performance in the warm-up cricket match and said they would surely "come hard at us" in the Tests.

"Just don't go by what they do in the (practice) match. Tests and practice matches are completely different," Ganguly said.

"These were the same bowlers -- (Brett) Lee, Mitchell Johnson and Stuart Clark -- who made things tough for us in Australia. It won't be any different when the Test matches start and I'm sure they'll come very hard at us," he was quoted as saying by 'The Courier Mail'.

"To do well, we'll have to be at the top of our game," he added.

Australia just about manage to draw their only practice match on the tour with only two batsmen -- Mike Hussey (126) and captain Ricky Ponting (58 not out)-- impressing against an Indian Board XI. Stuart Clark was the next top scorer with 44.

Besides, 10 of the 12 Australian wickets fell to spin at the Hyderabad match.
